The College Advisory Board (CAB) is made up of faculty and administrators from partner institutions who exercise direct oversight of the development and implementation of ACM-IAU’s academic programs in Aix-en-Provence, France, and Barcelona, Spain. Assessment and student learning outcomes are examined regularly. Full program reviews and professor interviews are also conducted to ensure the highest quality of academic integrity in the program. During its annual fall on-site meeting, hosted either at the Aix-en-Provence or Barcelona campus, CAB members review contact hours, syllabi, workload management, and the overall academic student experience. The CAB also keeps ACM-IAU informed of best practices among U.S. colleges and universities with regard to academic programming. Most CAB members hold a Ph.D. in their respective disciplines varying from modern languages, art history, literature and culture, and anthropology to psychology. The plurality of voices among the CAB members also contributes to the diversity of academic offerings at ACM-IAU.
